×M1. Area Business Continuity Management

Area business continuity management (Area-BCM) is a framework for coordinating multiple stakeholders with differing interests to achieve the continuity of socio-economic activities during the crisis. The framework enhances the public-private partnership (PPP) as well as the resilience of the business. Area-BCM framework does not facilitate an individually optimized response to a common crisis such as a natural disaster for business continuity by private companies, industrial complexes, infrastructure operators, local government agencies, and other stakeholders within the affected area, but a total optimization through an understanding of interdependencies and multidimensional collaboration.

Accordingly, the Area-BCM consists of five steps in its cycle:

  1. Understanding the Area
  2. Determining Area-BCM strategies
  3. Developing Area Business Continuity Plan (Area-BCP)
  4. Implementing and Reviewing
  5. Improving Area-BCM.

Thus, the related topics include (but not limited to) Area-Business Continuity Management, Area-Business Continuity Plan, Area-Business Impact Analysis, Area-Risk Assessment, Simulation and Modeling on Disaster Scenarios.
